Publisher's Summary

The love of your life...or a deadly mistake?

It’s hard meeting your ex after so much time apart. You remember the tears and accusations, the desperate look on his face as he punched the wall, but you try not to show it. You smile politely, even while your heart beats faster.

You watch as he looks down into the stroller, at the beautiful blond-haired, blue-eyed baby kicking his little legs in the sunshine, whose innocent smile lights up your world.

You see his face change. You know what he’s thinking.

The next day he calls. His voice is shaking. He wants the truth. Is it his child?

You hesitate, your throat dry, good and bad memories swirling in your mind. You’ve missed him so much...but can you ever trust him again?

You decide that the most important thing is doing what’s right for baby Tom. But months later, when the sirens wail in the night, you have to admit: You never thought either of you would go this far....

A brilliantly twisty psychological thriller from number one best-selling author S.E. Lynes about a relationship full of secrets and lies. Fans of Ruth Ware, Lisa Jewell, and Gillian Flynn will be gripped by The Ex.

Lynes and Kennard! Perfection!

I so do love my British physiological thrillers and this is yet another reason why. No doubt that this new Audible book is a winner! A favorite duo of mine, the choice of both S.E. Lynes and Tamsin Kennard brings forth their skills as they work in sync together. The first book I bought that takes place during the COVID lockdown, Lynes weaves a suspenseful and devious tale. Bringing two people together again, we are treated to Kennard’s pitch-perfect vocals of each and every character. I do have a vast collection of both of these talented women and I continue to look for more. This is a story filled with emotional issues including vengeance, lies, trust, sadness, secrets, murder, mind-games along with jaw-dropping surprises around every corner. I couldn’t stop listening. Worth my cherished credit? Indeed! An awesome nod to Lynes, Kennard and those responsible for making this Audible gem available. Epic, I say! EPIC! EPIC! EPIC!

EXCELLENT!

Great character development.
Very talented author and narrator. Great team.
Can't believe I got this book "for free" from the catalogue.
Am looking forward to her next book, both author and narrator.
Took one star off for swearing. The "F" bomb. But it mostly wasn't excessive and was not put where it shouldn't be. But I personally think swearing is NEVER necessary in any book, ever.
But again, great job.

returned after 1st chapter.

this was so predictable I returned it. do not like mention of pandemic at all times also. so depressing. I have almost enjoyed previous Lyness books but her writing has deteriorated. like many authors she is rushing to get books out.
